    A cougar was spotted in the center of Alpine on Friday.

    State Fish & Game was called out shortly after the mountain lion was spotted near the 1800 block of Alpine Boulevard a little before 9:30 a.m., according to the San Diego Sheriff's Department. Deputies said they saw the big cat themselves when they went out to the East County community to investigate the report.

    The cougar has not threatened anybody or any pets, according to deputies.

    Fish & Game workers may trap and re-locate the animal, officials said
